This industry is always changing, and with it, so too does our business. It’s up to us to follow market trends. When a new device is released we have to buy it, open it, take it apart, and decide if its a viable product to support.
Several years ago, we did a lot of repair and support of Macbook and other Apple computers. With the advent of the iPad in 2010, we’ve seen an increase in the number of iPad repairs we do, and conversely a decrease in the amount of MacBooks that we see in. This is due in part to the needs of the consumer. Many users find an iPad or tablet to be adequate for web browsing, email, and other simple task that they would otherwise use a laptop for. When you factor in price, an iPad being cheaper than a comparable Macbook, the decision is simple.
All this means is that we’ve had to shift our focus a bit. Schools all across the country are adopting the use of iPads in the classroom as interactive learnings tools in the place of textbooks and computers. In recent years we’ve partnered with many schools and districts across the nation to repair and support their devices.
Our EDU program is a relatively new part of our business and one that we are trying to bolster. We recently hired on a new man to our team, Mark, for a position that didn’t previously exist. Change in this business as well as in life allows for growth and opportunity. Congratulations are in order for Mark as he makes his first sale and settles into his new position as EDU Sales Representative.
